Welcome to Healthcaremagic Forum,
This is called chronic pharyngitis, it can be due to many conditions, including viral/bacterial infection. It can also be a condition called laryngo-pharyngeal reflux seen in patients with reflux esophagitis. It would be better to drink plenty of warm water, do gargles with povidone iodine mouth wash, also to take medications if he is having any gastric problems.

Take care
